Description

Calling all Flying Scotsman fans! If you’re looking for an extra special pre-Christmas break to get you into the festive mood, then look no further. This December, travel behind the legendary 1923-built steam locomotive on the Settle to Carlisle Railway and the West Coast Main Line Railway. Take in the beautiful views of the Yorkshire Dales, as we head over the 24 arches of the Ribblehead Viaduct, through the long tunnel at Blea Moor and on past the lush pastures of the Eden Valley. Also included on this break is 4-star accommodation in central Manchester. It’s sure to be a memorable break away and the perfect start to the festive season!

Make your way to the centrally located DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Manchester – Piccadilly*. After check in, your time is at leisure to explore this vibrant city. Manchester’s magical, award-winning Christmas Markets are a wonderful way to get into the festive spirit. Packed with gifts, clothes, food and drink, jewellery and more, take the chance to start your Christmas shopping or simply take in the atmosphere and the variety of offerings.

This morning make your way to Manchester Victoria station to board the train behind the magnificent locomotive Flying Scotsman for a picturesque, steam hauled round trip journey. Travel through the gorgeous scenery of the Ribble Valley towards Carlisle and take in the stunning views of the Lake District with its abundance of natural beauty. The train will convey a buffet car with a fully stocked licensed bar selling hot and cold drinks and light refreshments to enjoy along the way. Upon arriving in Carlisle, we have some free time before the return journey to Manchester Victoria station on the West Coast Main Line Railway. This evening, enjoy further time at leisure in the city.
